I can’t believe my daughter is 4! I remember her like this as if it were yesterday…
This past weekend we celebrated her 4th birthday with an “Elsa” Party. It was her first real party so I wanted her to love it! She was so sweet and kept saying I can’t believe “I get a party – thank you Mom – thank you!” So of course with that kind of enthusiasm, I wanted the party to be something she would always remember! I thought it turned out really great and I loved all the vendors I worked with, so I wanted to share some of the highlights with you. If you are in or around Raleigh you should check them out!
The first thing I did was have the invitation designed. I worked with Cute Pixels on Etsy. She was extremely professional and it was a quick turnaround. I then printed the invitations at Pip in Cary – these guys are great and got them done for me in 1 day!!
Then I contacted my cake lady – Jennifer Dail! If you want a beautiful AND tasty cake she is your woman! Kennedy wanted an Elsa “Barbie” cake and Jennifer didn’t disappoint – how cute did this turn out?!?!
Next I needed ideas for food and decorations – and where do you go for that? Pinterest of course!! My favorite post was for these free Frozen printables. I used them for notes for my gift bags and food labels – so easy to edit them in Picasa and so cute! Took about 15 minutes total. Since the party was from 1 – 3, I only served dessert type food. I made “Frozen” Muddy Buddies, Blue Chocolate covered pretzels, chocolate kisses and “olaf noses” (which were Cheetos and not dessert but I needed another thing to go with the theme – ha!). And finally for the decorations, I made some wreaths for the front door and then basically used my Christmas decorations that I hadn’t put away yet (1 win for a right after Christmas birthday!). I used this post as the inspiration for the wreaths.
The highlight of the party was when Anna and Elsa arrived and I have Enchanted Wishes to thank for that! Ines and her girls were great and stayed in character the whole time!
The first picture was of our family on the day Kennedy was born and this is us four years later…
And yes – the jazz hands are totally her personality;)!
